Community Health Network of Washington (CHNW) is committed to protecting the privacy and security of the users of our web site. Protecting your privacy on the Internet is important to us.

We will review this statement on a regular basis to address new issues and to reflect changes on our web site. We will post changes to our privacy statement here. Please regularly refer back to this statement.

Cookies and Your Privacy

A cookie is a small data file that certain web sites save to your computer when you visit them. Cookie files are often used to track the pages you visited. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your computer or read cookie files created by other sites.

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you set your browser to do so, please note that some parts of our site might not work properly.

CHNW may use cookie technology or IP address tracking to collect information that does not identify you. This information about you might include the browser (such as Internet Explorer or Safari), operating system (such as Windows or Mac OS), and type of computer you use, your Internet service provider, and other similar information.

We use such non-identifying information in the aggregate to understand how our users, as a group, use the services and resources on our site. That means that we compile and process information about a group of users so that no single user's information can be identified. We study aggregate information to learn which areas of our site are most popular, which areas we need to improve, and what equipment and programs our visitors use. We use this information to help us improve our site.

Acceptance of Our Web Privacy Policy

If you use any part of the CHNW's web site, it means that you understand and accept our privacy statement and our policies about web privacy. If you do not agree to this statement, please do not use our site. Your continued use of the CHNW site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean that you accept those changes.
